CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – A Conway man was sentenced to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to voluntary manslaughter in the 2014 shooting death of a 26-year-old man outside an apartment complex in Carolina Forest.

Delshawn Anthony Davis, 31, of Conway, pleaded guilty before his trial was set to begin Monday, according to violent crimes solicitor Nancy Livesay in a news release from the 15th Circuit Court. Judge Larry Hyman sentenced Davis to 25 years in prison.

Antonio Daxter Smith, 26, was shot four times on June 14, 2014, after an altercation in the parking lot of Canterbury Apartments in Carolina Forest, the release sates. Davis turned himself in to police days later, and was originally charged with murder.

“It’s terrible because two lives were ruined,” Livesay said. “It was the hard work by the Horry County Police Department that lead this case to a guilty plea today. We appreciate the hard work and long hours the officers spent investigating this case and bringing justice to the victim’s family.”

    Flooding across the area is causing people to leave their homes behind, wondering when then they can return. People who live in the Brunswick Plantation said during previous storms water never came up to their driveways, but are experiencing a much different story here as more than 3 feet of water is over taking their homes.
